Hockey commentator Don Cherry will be initiated as an honourary life member of the Royal Canadian Legion in a special ceremony on Saturday in Kingston.
He will be just the 40th person so honoured in the legion’s 81-year history, joining luminaries such as Mackenzie King, John Diefenbaker, Lester Pearson, Dwight Eisenhower and Earl Mountbatten.
“I gotta tell you this means an awful lot to me and I really mean that,” Cherry said in a noticeably softer-than-usual tone during a phone interview. “I can’t really put it into words except to say I’m quite humbled that the legion thinks that much of me to honour me in this way.”
